Right down to the freaking bone via die grinder and PITA hose fittings on the heater.
Stop the bleeding with an oily rag, clean it with Brakeclean, wrap it in a paper towel, and send it.

Thats what happens when you ignore the 17 pages of warnings in all tool owners manuals. Lol. Wish I could saw I haven’t done this before. I even did this once with a chain saw when I was a young teen. Top side of the thumb, no scars, except the emotional ones.

The brake clean antiseptic technique is new to me. WD-40 seems to work better for me. Less involvement by the neighbors. :crying:

Hey Sal. You’re the only person I’ve seen with experience on the tire. What are your thoughts on the Hankook Z214? $325 for 315/30/18 looks pretty attractive

To be honest with you, I only ran them once and they were way too small for my power level at the time so I couldn't give you a meaningful review.
I don't think any DOT is going to beat a Hoosier in either grip or the ability to cycle out faster than you can say "WTF did my money go"?
That being said, if you're looking for a track day tire, I believe the longevity on them are good and the grip is decent.
The USTCC races on them and those guys are going pretty fast. It might be worth a try.
